Nostalgia

What little girl or boy didn't or doesn't have a teddy bear that they cherished growing up? I collected bears, so I had many of them on my bed. The first gift that my husband ever gave me when we were dating was a little pink teddy bear, I still have her to this day.

Memories are a funny thing. You can just be sitting or not even thinking about something that happened a long time ago and a specific memory pops into your mind. Teddy bears were my memory blasts this week. Please stop over at ebay and check them out. Leave me a comment. I'm always happy to take special orders. Thanks for dropping by!

Pumpkin Time of Year!

Hello! I can't believe I have waited this long to post something. So sorry!! Let me give you a little update on what's been going on with me and then I'll share my little costume tear bear with you.

Remember last month I went on vacation and was having some knee pain. Well, the knee pain has not went away and I've been to my family doc, an orthopedic doc and the ER within a couple of weeks of each other. I even had an MRI done, my first ever. So, I have osteoarthritis in my left knee. I will be receiving a series of 3 shots that will lubricate my knee and hopefully lessen the pain I am having. Pray for me...I'm a big chicken when it comes to having needles inserted into my body. I almost fainted when he told me I had osteo and that I'd be receiving shots. Talk about a big baby, that's me!!

There's not a lot I can do here at home, so I've been up in my craft room designing a new bear or two. This little guy was fun to make. I love fall and all the crisp, fragant smells that come with it. Mmmmmm!

I made the bear with extra thick mulberry paper, the only kind to do fluffy bears with. Anything thinner and they just do not come out very good. I cut some orange ovals with my cricut and pieced together a pumpkin with it. I love inking the edges of my art, looks so realistic. Once the pumpkin was completed I cut the top off and placed it on the bears head. So, cute. Check it out on ebay if you are interested.

I've rattled on enough. Have a wonderful day and I hope to be sharing more with you later.
